Mr. Leb Rady said: “Starting from the wedding, I always drank wine, broke down the dishes, the TV, the phone, the motor bike and I would also hit and abused the children. My neighbors didn’t like my family. Finally the villagers and CF persuaded me and my wife to participate in a training on Gender Concept, Child Protection, Domestic Violence and Family Tools with KAFDOC and CED. Eventually my family started to change step by step. So far I and my wife, we try to work hard. Beside my job as a builder, I also help my wife with the house work, because she is also a worker. This way my family can recover from the past. I replaced the TV, the motor bike, the bicycle, the dishes and the phone. Now, my children go to school every day, so they are not absent any more. They finally have time to study. My family is happy now and I am also very happy to present the good results of my changing on this platform. Please, don’t follow my wrong doing, which I committed before! Everybody should think about what is good and useful for their families ”.

This way, anytime they can present this case to the neighbors and they can contact the women commune platform. The commune admires him and encourages other unhappy families in Russie to follow his example, and to be brave enough to make a change.
